Gas Safety Certificates

Gas Safety Certificate Specialists for London, Essex & South East

What are Gas safety certificates?

Gas safety certificates are the best way to prove to your self – and to others – that your gas appliances including boilers, gas fires, ovens and hobs are working safely. The official names for Gas safety certificates are the ‘Landlord Gas Safety Record’ or ‘CP12’ form. Whatever you call it, it is full of information detailing your gas appliances plus notes about defects found during the gas safety inspection.

Gas certificates can only be issued by Gas Safe registered engineers.

What are Gas safety certificates for?

Gas safety certificates give confirmation from a trusted source that gas appliances are working safely. Gas inspections also highlight when you need to service various appliances.

Why do I need a gas safety certificate?

Getting appliances serviced every year is vital to safety and efficiency. If you’re letting a property, whether commercial or domestic, you will always be asked for a gas certificate; letting agencies will not let your property without one. If you’re planning to buy a property it is standard practice to carry out a professional gas safety check before you buy, to ensure the property is gas safe.

What if I don’t have a Gas safety certificate?

You can’t smell, see, hear or taste carbon monoxide (CO). But without gas safety checks you – and everyone else who lives or works in your property – risks CO poisoning.

The main causes of CO poisoning in the UK are inaccurately fitted, poorly repaired and badly maintained gas appliances. Fourteen or so UK residents die each year from CO and many more are brain damaged. CO is produced when gas isn’t burned completely, so poor fitting, maintenance and repair represent serious risks. Gas safety checks also examine gas flues, chimneys and vents, all of which can lead to CO poisoning.

Faulty gas appliances also lead to explosions and fires. Both can be lethal as well as extremely expensive to remedy.

Do Gas safety certificates come with legal obligations?

  • If You Let Property You Are Legally Obliged To Make Sure That All The Gas Appliances Provided For Your Tenants Are Safe
  • You Are Legally Bound To Give Your Tenants A Copy Of The Gas Safety Certificate, Either Within 28 Days Of It Being Completed Or Before They Move In
  • You Must Have A Fresh Gas Safety Check Every Year
  • A Gas Safe Registered Engineer Must Carry Out The Safety Check If You’re Property Is In Great Britain Or On The Isle Of Man.
